Basic Microscopy 'In the Footsteps of Antoni van Leeuwenhoek'
This course teaches you the application of a range of imaging possibilities within the Centre for Microscopy at the Amsterdam UMC (location AMC & VUmc) and the NKI-AvL. They are presented in lectures, discussions and hands-on demonstrations. The individual research projects of the attending participants will be discussed in relation to the demonstrated techniques, allowing exchange of ideas with fellow participants and microscopy experts and operators. The course is a guide to implement cellular imaging in your own research project. A part of the participants could bring their sample for analysis after consulting with the organization first.
Topics covered include
– Basic principles of microscopy
– Specimen preparation, staining methods and assay systems
– Quantitative analysis of microscopic images
– Confocal laser scanning microscopy
– Electron microscopy techniques
– Imaging flow cytometry
– Wide field microscopy
– Ultramicroscoop and 2-photon
– Live cell imaging
AMC, NKI-AvL and VUmc
OOA PhD students. All other interested PhD students, postdocs and technicians with their own research project can also attend when places are available.
